Computed tomography (CT) was used to study the normal anatomy of the orbital region in one Beagle. Direct transverse and reformatted dorsal, sagittal, and oblique plane images were used to distinguish various soft tissue structures. Intraorbital fat provided a natural contrast against which extraocular muscles and nerves could be discerned. The noninvasive nature and the multiplanar imaging capabilities of CT provided a means by which the orbital contents could be precisely localized and differentiated from one another.
